It is more like their front door being owned by a neighbouring nation. I think the best solution would be to model and agreement based on the Íresund model.

I was looking at the larger picture, not this specific incident.
But I guess it is up to you and dogukan to size power to make that happen...

This year have been remarkably free of blank and double gameweeks up until now and given Arsenal and Citys hardships in the Champions league I think that blanks and DGWs will have a relatively low...

I really dont like Erdogans new politics so in general I am skeptic.
But at the same time a NOTAM is not a big problem and given the current geopolitical situation we need to be realistic....

I am surprised by your refusal to accept that coordinated military operations require trained personnel which mean that it's not just equipment that is necessary, it is trained and educated military...

Your argument does not make any sense in this context.
1) Ukrainian soldiers do post images of themselves together with Russian equipment (the guys facebook page)....

You can also see him on Twitter trying to do damage control despite the fact that it is clearly a T-72B3 (link) with the armour and SOSNA-U sight to the left of the smoke launcher identifying it.

I just showed you a pro Russian journalist riding infront of a Russian tank platoon in Ukraine.
That combined with all the other evidence posted so far makes your position just as bad as the 911...
February 26, 2015, 12:25 PM
No, separatist leaders signed the papers. And by now I thought everyone had realized that the Russian tank platoons are indeed Russian.
February 26, 2015, 05:04 AM
That is not Putins plans, it is however a good example how Russians employ 6th generation war tactics without borders between civic society and military expansions. The reason that the plans are...

Update on the situation:
The blog is pro-Ukrainian but he is good at supporting his...

Too bad that they have already started the attack towards Mariupol. I guess that either the Russians were lying or those particular 10 pieces are moved there as the main force must have started their...
February 25, 2015, 08:31 AM
They are redeploying towards Mariupol. Both Lebedynske and Tavryches'ke has been attacked in the last two days and we also see reports of a Russian build up outside Mariupol.

I think it is important to distinguish between different incentives. Forcefully disbelieving something because you do not want it to be true is very different from the usual "anti person" who start...
February 24, 2015, 09:18 AM
No I expect a reaction from Russia. I do however expect that reaction to be less severe than what we get if Russian continues on it's current path of expansion.
Right now the situation is perfect...

There is an almost unlimited list of ways to increase economical sanctions without making it total.
Mix that with arming Poland and Baltikum with modern weapons while transferring Warsaw pact...
February 23, 2015, 03:39 PM
If that was true. Then the Russian army is in some even deeper :wub: as the lowest claimed number of dead is 1411 separatists and 1540 Ukrainian soldiers and the highest is 8000 separatists and 2322...
February 23, 2015, 08:53 AM
For some weapon systems and in limited amounts this is true. But the Russians are using systems like the Grad in massive amounts.
I don't think you understand the sheer scale of this...
February 23, 2015, 04:24 AM
No it is not a legal technicality. Russia is using force against the territorial integrity or political independence of another state and what they call their soldiers doesn't matter.
February 23, 2015, 04:05 AM
I agree completely that the Russian losses are far smaller than the separatist loses. But the sad fact is that the Russian perspective won't change until the start to suffer significant losses of...
February 23, 2015, 01:20 AM
I don't think many care about rebel losses. What's really interesting is how many men the Russians lost and how much the ammunition cost them.
February 23, 2015, 12:58 AM
My guess is that it is a boiling liquid expanding vapor explosion (BLEVE) rather than a military attack. The explosion moves slowly just like a Hollywood style bomb and that effect is caused by fuel...

A large proportion of the population already believe that it is not only American weapons but Americans holding them.

Conrrection: Russia have in the last few years scored higher the Russia on the Corruption perception index.
In other words, Ukrainians have since 2011 been more frustrated by corruption than...
February 21, 2015, 08:58 AM
Asking "What have then done so far?" when pretty much everyone you have been arguing with in the thread have claimed that they are to limited doesn't exactly help your case. Especially at a point...

After Debaltseve (estimated Ukrainian losses 200-400), Shyrokyne east of Mariupol is being attacked by the Russian forces.
My guess is that each...

Putin is blamed for invading Ukraine and for trying to force Ukraine to remain corrupt.
I don't think anyone is going to argue that Ukrainians would be any better than Romania if left to it's own...
February 18, 2015, 06:52 PM
Look at the period before that as well. The perception of corruption was at it's lowest in Ukraine 2005-2010 which corresponds to the time Yanukovych was not in power.
February 18, 2015, 05:42 PM
I wonder what happened in Ukraine 2010 that made them crash beneath Russia in the 2011 index.
Oh yeah, Yanukovych was elected and I guess it takes more than 10 months in a country battered by a...
February 18, 2015, 03:24 PM
We had a discussion on this a year ago and your position on this just show how disgracefully poor the German coverage was. I still remember the "investigation" by German state television (Monitor?)...

The command language of Azov is Russian, if it had been predominantly West Ukrainian it would not have been Russian.
February 18, 2015, 10:24 AM
Pretty callous statement from Poroschenko.
But it will be interesting to see how Merkel react to this as Debaltseve really make it clear how...
February 18, 2015, 10:19 AM
I wish that was true. But right now it mostly looks like an excuse for politicians to pretend to do something while still underfunding the armed forces.
in Sweden we got budget negotiations going...
I am not a huge fan of the old style PKK. But given current circumstances in Syria and Erdogans increasingly authoritarian style I am inclined to support the Kurds. Especially if we can use the...

It's not good but not that bad.
All the people I follow on social networks who were in Debaltseve got out. So either I only follow ninja cyborgs or things are better than you claim.
Gerald Ford must be the greatest. That is why they named their aircraft carriers after him, right?
The enemy of my enemy is not necessarily my friend.
We do not have to chose between either one of these extremes.

We are already confronting him, the question is if the EU got the resolve to keep confronting him now or if we should wait until we got our backs towards the wall.
February 18, 2015, 05:54 AM
Worst plan ever.
With the West constantly backing down Putin will try to test the boundaries again, again and again. And if one of those attempts lead to his army "disappearing in a few weeks",...
February 18, 2015, 05:16 AM
Thanks to Swedish volunteers and analysts I am starting to get a better grip on the Russian fighting capabilities. From a Global Firepower perspective the Russian army still got huge issues just like...
